USC Cruises Over UNO, 88-54

In their first meeting since Ledell Eackles' debut game at Lakefront Arena in 1986, the USC Trojans ran away with a victory over the New Orleans Privateers, 88-54, on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.

It was an ugly night for the Privateers, who were outscored by 17 in both halves.  As has been the norm early on this season, Erik Thomas was the UNO bright spot, notching 20 points and 7 rebounds to lead the way.  Tevin Broyles was the only other Privateer in double digits with 11.

New Orleans returns home to the lakefront on Friday night at 7 p.m., where they hope to have a significantly easier time with non-Division I Florida College.
